Charles August Staehlin and Della Blackwood of New Mexico/Texas
Any info regarding Charles August Staehlin, and particularly regarding his 2nd wife Naomi Adella “Della” (Blackwood) Staehlin, would be greatly appreciated.
Charles was born in 1887 in Albuquerque, NM, the son of August Louis Staehlin and Amelia Richter.He was an optician or optometrist by profession.He married Laura Belle Payne probably around 1917/1918.They had a daughter named Elizabeth around 1918/1919 who may still be living in CA under her married name.
Charles then married my great aunt, Della Blackwood, sometime in the early 1920’s.Della was born in 1882 in Wright Co., MO, the daughter of John Blackwood and Mary Letitia Allen.The last mention of Della is found on a document dating Sept. 1924.The couple were either living in or visiting Corpus Christi, TX at the time.An obituary of one of Della’s sisters dated Sept. 1926, however, indicates that Della was no longer living by this time.Would very much like to know exactly when and where she died, and where she is laid to rest.
Charles then married a Mary E. Dorrs or Dorris in 1927 in Swisher Co., TX. The couple possibly resided in Amarillo, TX.He may have stepdaughter by Mary named Dr. Violet Dorrs/Dorris, who may still be living, possibly under a married name.
Charles appears to have died in 1959, possibly in TX.
Any info on this couple or any living descendants/family members would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.(Best email: [email protected] )
